We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Audio Files

You are here

Are the audio files, which are "freely" downloadable, are they free to use or do I need to purchase a one-time license for using the audio accompaniment for a quarantined church video that would be put on the church's Facebook page? Specifically, using the piano or organ MP3 for Heavenly Sunlight foundat https://hymnary.org/text/walking_in_sunlight_all_of_my_journey, do I need to pay for a one time use?

Thank you.



You are free to use the MP3s for "Heavenly Sunlight" for you church video or any recordings that come from Small Church Music. No license is needed. The sources of the audio files may be found under "Media->Audio" on the hymn pages.

Y'all rock!
